China has said it “will never allow” any country to intervene militarily in a Taiwan Strait conflict, one day after Japan‘s deputy prime minister posited a collective defense of the self-ruled island by Japanese and U.S. forces. Zhao Lijian, a spokesperson for the Chinese Foreign Ministry, called recent remarks by senior Japanese official Taro Aso “extremely wrong and dangerous,” saying they “undermine the political foundation of China-Japan relations.”

Aso, who is Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga‘s deputy as well as the country’s finance minister, told a political fundraiser in Tokyo on Monday that a Chinese invasion of Taiwan could be seen as an “existential threat” to Japan and its outlying islands.

“If a major incident occurs in Taiwan, it’s not at all unusual to consider it an existential threat [to Japan],” Tokyo’s Jiji Press quoted him as saying. “In such a case, Japan and the United States will have to work together to defend Taiwan.” Zhao said China “deplores and firmly opposes” Aso’s remarks, and had filed a diplomatic complaint with Japan. It was China’s third such protest in the space of four weeks, following separate incidents in June involving Suga and Japanese Deputy Defense Minister Yasuhide Nakayama—both over Taiwan.
